That's great!! I was wondering how many donations you were getting. I'd love to send you some things too. Who knows, maybe you'll make it to 150!!

Final Tally
My family and I just sorted thru all the blankets, booties and hats. I have my final count.

Blankets: 107
Hat: 138
Booties: 38

Total: 283 + $60

I am in awe...I never dreamed people would be so generous with there time and love. My goal was 50 items and I could not have done it with out every one's help. Thank you to all that contributed. I hope to make this an annual event. I will deliver these to Parkland Hospital in Dallas on Tuesday, Aug 11. It will be a bittersweet day for my entire family. God Bless.
